Superfund Site Profile
The 5,170-acre Alabama Army Ammunition Plant (AAAP) site is located in Talladega County, Alabama, near Childersburg. It is the location of a former explosives manufacturing facility. EPA placed the site on the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1987 because past operations contaminated soil, sediments and ground water. The Army, EPA and the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) have investigated site conditions and taken steps to clean up the site in order to protect people and the environment from contamination. Site contamination does not currently threaten people living and working near the site. By cleaning up and monitoring soils and ground water, enforcing institutional controls, and conducting required Five-Year Reviews, the Army, EPA and ADEM continue to make sure residents and the environment are protected from site contamination.
